Nevermind, my hypothesis did not follow with other gamers while checking it.
Checking further though, awarding of this badge is ALL OVER the place. Some people get it the next day (about half) and some get it 2 days later (about half) and then a few get it just whenever. (One person registered 8-25-2013 and got the badge today, so 12 days later.)
Please let old threads die and do not reply to them unless you feel you have something new and valuable to contribute that absolutely must be added to make the discussion complete.
Otherwise, please post a new thread in this forum instead.
